Reflection: Real World Applications Plant Life Cycle Introduction - Section 1: Why This Lesson?


Sometimes, I feel like our ELA standards come across to our students as "checklist items" that go along with specific stories; I hate that!  So, I try my hardest to make sure that my students are aware that these skills, although we may learn them in reading, can be applied to their daily lives.  I like to see the light bulb go off in my students' heads when they realize that they can apply what they are learning to things in their daily lives.  Of course I want students to know that they can sequence stories, but I also want them to realize that they can sequence all sorts of things- like plants! 

  Real World Applications: Sequencing is IMPORTANT; make that point come across!
